feedback about North Okaloosa Medical Center
Been there a few times for my kids. Overall a positive experience but they need to have a talk with their nurses. They need to be careful with sharing their opinions. Twice I had nurses tell me to not to give my kids prescribed medication. That can be dangerous and cause children harm even death.
I tried to give ZERO stars for this medical institution. To those who evaluate reviews, DO NOT go to this hospital. They are rated as one of the most expensive hospitals in the NATION, you can verify this with a simple search. I went in for a sciatic nerve issue, the doctor recommended an X-Ray which OF COURSE provided no clarity on the issue. Furthermore, when I asked for an itemized list of services rendered and there cost, they did not provide it. I asked PRIOR to them doing anything. Got nothing. This hospital also has the worst billing employees ever. They cannot comprehend nor do basic mathematics. When it comes to billing, 2+2 = 1000 to them. This hospital is greedy and corrupt. I will never go there again. I will make the drive to Pensacola or the Urgent Care next time. Also, to those in law enforcement, if you want to perform a sting operation, sit outside the ER. Plenty of crackheads to bust.
The only one there that is worth a damn is the X-Ray tech. He was great. To end on this, if you have a sciatic nerve issue, go to Urgent Care. They gave me one steroid shot and some motrin, cost me $2600 with discounts. Garbage.
North Okaloosa Medical Center pretty much sucks! Their emergency room, with the exception of a few nurses that know what they're doing, is staffed bye completely ignorant doctors that would rather do nothing then care for the patients! If you need emergency medical care drive to Twin Cities Hospital.
Ambulance people made decision to NOMC from DeFuniak Springs, FL for severe back pain and radiating pain and numbness into my left leg, told them I had prior back problems and surgeries, ended up CAT scan showed herniated disc's in four levels of my lower back, horrific pain. Got better medical care with the paramedic's in the ambulance getting there than with the people at NOMC ER!! Lots of nurses doing very little to help me. Seemed un-caring for most of them, telling to me relax and breath normally! I told them I would if I could get some pain relief!! They let me stay in pain most of the time, apparently thinking they only treat someone with minor pain and clueless or careless about the pain I was in! They said a doctor would be in to see me shortly, but a doctor never came to see me, as they apparently just communicated over the phone with one I guess. WILL NEVER HAVE ANY LOVED ONE OF MINE EVER GO THERE AGAIN! Come to fine out, they have no ortho or neuro doctors (perhaps no doctor at all on staff last night?), but they could have at least given me relief of pain shortly after getting in their care. I had to repeat and repeat and repeat I had prior back surgeries, medicines taken, you name it. NEVER AGAIN FOR ME! Will drive or ambulance me to a better hospital next time for sure!
Friend had both parents die there same within a year. Just sick they were ok when he left then call during night saying they had passed. My spouse admit that for $20,000 collections stated " they wouldn't help her again cuz she couldn't pay a year ago"..... A threat.....But we were low budget when happened a year ago. And on me years ago only thing they did was stick finger in my mouth then a script and tried to cahrge $700... Hopefully never go there again after threats
